Kahotan previews a beefcake from Dramatical Murder

With the amount of attention I pay to boobs and (female) butts, it seems only fair that I cover some eye candy for the ladies too. Max Factory’s upcoming figure of Ren from Dramatical Murder fits the bill very nicely!

Kahotan’s preview shows off two versions of Ren: the cloaked Wonderful Hobby Selection version (dubbed “Rhyme Mode ver.”) and a permanently topless “Together, Forever” version. If you’re after the abs, you probably won’t have any issues with either version. However I’m somewhat miffed by the decision to put out an exclusive WHS version at nearly double the price (something we also saw with Yamato). I feel that the WHS version is the true version of the figure – the one that Max Factory would have sold in the past at a normal price. Maybe economics has made this unfeasible, but there’s something bothersome about a stripped down (in both senses) figure for ¥10,000+.

Speaking of pricing, the “Rhyme Mode” variant will be ¥19,800 while the barebones “Together, Forever” version will be ¥10,800. Pre-orders started a couple of weeks ago and are still open if you’re interested.

Kahotan previews the Eva Racing Nendoroid Asuka

Since we saw Nendoroid Rei, the natural progression would be to see Nendoroid Asuka because they are the only two characters in the whole of Evangelion. It’s still strange to me that the first Nendoroid Eva pilots we get are the Eva Racing designs, but something is better than nothing.

Actually this Asuka is way better than nothing. Whereas Rei is mostly unexpressive, Nendoroid Asuka has a cheerful smile and an angry face. I also like her selection of arms and legs better (but let’s be real, I’m buying both). Kahotan says they’ll both be up for pre-order in a couple of days, but make sure you take a look at her preview in the meantime!

Kahotan previews Good Smile Company’s Eren yeager

I’m sure Good Smile Company’s Eren Yeager will be a fine figure – the definitive one, even – but all these Attack on Titan guys are starting too look the same to me. Back when the show first aired, I was starving for AoT figures. Oh, the irony.

Kahotan’s latest preview shows off Eren in all his hotheaded glory, leaping off a chimney and presumably toward the maw of a titan. Stop me if you’ve seen this before: the maneuver gear, the gas canisters, the blade holder, and the wires all make for an impressive figure. But Sentinel’s figures were impressive. Kotobukiya’s figures were impressive. I guess we’ll see how GSC stacks up (I do have their Mikasa on order so I’ll soon know first-hand).

Eren is up for pre-order right now for ¥13,800. Unlike Mikasa, it doesn’t look like Eren will get a deluxe variant, or even a Good Smile Online Shop exclusive bonus. He’s set for an April 2015 release.

Marvel Select Cable headlines back cover of September issue of Previews

Diamond Comics’ new issue of PREVIEWS showcases Diamond Select Toys’ Marvel Select Cable, just one of the many things I was excited to see at SDCC. It’s probably worth he’s also currently available for pre-order.

DST’s Marvel Select Cable might be my favorite figure version of the character, in no small part because it gives Cable that proper bulky look. I suspect that the body armor might impede his movement but gosh darn does it look awesome.

DST’s MS Cable can be pre-ordered for around US$25 and is slated for a March release.

Kotobukiya previews their Marvel Now Deadpool "Merc with a Mouth" ARTFX+ Statue

“I might be crazy, but I’m not KARAAAZY.”

Deadpool (Wade Winston Wilson) is a fictional character, a mercenary and anti-hero appearing in comic books published by Marvel Comics. Created by artist Rob Liefeld and writer Fabian Nicieza, Deadpool first appeared in New Mutants #98 (Feb. 1991).

A disfigured and mentally unstable mercenary, Deadpool originally appeared as a villain in an issue of New Mutants, and later in issues of X-Force. The character has since starred in several ongoing series, and shares titles with other characters such as Cable. Also known as the “Merc with a Mouth”, Deadpool is famous for his talkative nature and his tendency to break the fourth wall, which is used by writers to humorous effect.

These are preview pictures of Kotobukiya’s Marvel Now Deadpool ARTFX+ Statue. It does look pretty awesome and might prove to be a hot seller given the character’s rise in popularity these days. Why that is I’m not too sure but he does get a lot of attention and is proving to be as hot as Wolverine.
